Centropa: Jewish Heritage in Central and Eastern Europe
http://www.centropa.org/mainpage/main.asp

A nonprofit organization based in Vienna, Austria, the Centropa group is
headed up by a team of historians, educators, photographers, and other
artists and scholars. The site contains a number of different oral history
and photographic archives, in addition to sections dealing with
contemporary Jewish life in the region and around the world. The basic
search options within each of these sections allows visitors to choose a
country of interest and to highlight certain themes (such as religious
figures or personal letters), so that the results will be customized
appropriately. An advanced search option allows visitors to look for
materials based on family surname and city. The site concludes with a
section that offers suggestions for eating in different restaurants around
Eastern Europe and with travel tips for the area compiled by Ruth Ellen
Gruber, who has published three books on Jewish Europe. [KMG]
